This class was tough.
This class is extremely challenging. The lectures are easy to listen to, but don't even come close to preparing you for the exams. The exams are just 22-23 questions each, but all almost all quantitative. The calculations you will need to do during the exams aren't covered in the lectures and the book does not provide good examples. It's very disappointing that this class is so difficult, when Finance 501 with Dr. Loving was so clear and easy to understand.
The lectures are good to listen to, as you will learn some financial concepts. Most of the content is not new though, as it was covered in Finance 501. Just make sure not too much time passes between when you take Finance 501 and when you take Finance 504.

Advice for students:
It would be good to have a tutor for this class or watch YouTube videos before the exams to ensure you understand how to run all the equations in your calculator.
